A 56-year-old woman was killed during the Texas church massacre as she stepped in front of her 18-year-old grandson to shield him from the bullets, according to a report.
Peggy Lynn Warden’s heroics saved the life of Zachary Logan Poston, who was left with multiple gunshot wounds in the arms and legs, the San Antonio Express reported.
“She is our hero. She saved Zachary’s life,” said Poston’s great-aunt, Korri Scheel Stevens, who created a GoFundMe campaign.
One bullet shattered Poston’s kneecap as he tried to push a young girl beneath a church pew, hiding her from the shooter’s line of fire, Scheel wrote.
The young man then pretended to be dead to avoid attracting the killer’s attention.
Poston’s mom, Jennifer Racey, said her son “has a long road ahead of him but is stable, alert and doing very well.”
